Add --conf-foo flag to zypper for all "foo" in /etc/zypp.conf

Description

[https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=693765]
Flags to override settings in /etc/zypp/zypp.conf, such as --repos-dir, --cache-dir, --raw-cache-dir, have been requested and added piecemeal over time. See for example Bug #441377 and Bug #693740.
How about solving this once and for all with a generic flag pattern, so that e.g. --conf-sect-foo would be override the setting for config variable `foo' in section [sect] of /etc/zypp/zypp.conf.
So for example, packagesdir could be overridden via --conf-main-packagesdir. Etc.

This is what many other utilities do. For example, OpenSSH does with the '-o' flag (e.g., `-oPort=1234').
